Hello I have a few questions:
-I tried to ping my website which is a shared hosting account, took the IP and entered it into internet explorer. It did not work. Is it because that IP is used by all the people that are sharing that server with me?
-Yahoo.com on the other hand does have its own IP, so… If I was to purchase a server would I automatically be getting a static IP? Or would I have to buy it? If I bought a server and did not buy a static IP what IP would I be using?
-When you use a proxy to go to certain websites does that block your router given (network IP) or the IP given by my DSL provider?
-Pros/Cons of having a static IP vs shared or whatever IP is used (still not sure what IP a server would use if it doesn’t have a static IP)
-Whats all this about IPv6?
-Where can I read up about this stuff?
